Roxane Gay has a knack for turning uncomfortable truths into necessary reading. The author, whose much-celebrated works, Bad Feminist and Difficult Women made her a hero for millennial feminists, has never shied away from getting personal, but her latest project, a memoir called Hunger , goes deep. Gay unflinchingly guides readers through an exploration of pain, desire, and the realities of her life as an overweight woman, following a cataclysmic early trauma back to the root, and recording the reverberations that event has had on the rest of her life. A prolific essayist and cultural critic, Gay has tackled subjects both lighthearted and grave before. With dueling ideas about fatness currently serving as a rallying cry for body positive activists, online concern trolls, and the medical health community, Gay is very considered in the discussions she has around size, and always careful to nail home that above all, fat people deserve dignity—not that her efforts always make a difference. How many steps will she have to take to get to the interview?

Doonan's advice will probably be equally cute, fun, and witty. The book is supposedly, "a stylishly slimming discourse that proves gay men really ARE French women: prone to disdain, favoring cheeky underwear, convinced of their own artistic brilliance, and of course calorie-obsessed. The advice as to why gay men don't get fat isn't as palatable. There is only one thing that keeps gay men in shape: fear.

Since we were seated on a stage in Berkeley , California, before a crowd of her cheering and clapping fans, it was not the response I expected. Why would a woman best known for telling it like it is, for brazenly calling out white privilege, boldly interrogating her own imperfect embrace of feminism , and exposing the constant and demeaning constrictions imposed on black and female bodies, dread anything at all? A work of staggering honesty, the book chronicles with unsparing acuity the terror of a childhood sexual assault that Gay kept secret for decades; the refuge she sought in food; the armor she thought her weighty self would be, and the cage it became. It is, even for Gay, a lot of truth to tell, and society, we know, is not often kind to truth tellers—even those who are not black and female and entirely unapologetic.
